Rock group from Bayonne, New Jersey. They have a very interesting sound combining 1960's style folk rock with some 1980's style punk. Many of their songs are written in a minor key giving them a certain kind of melancholy feel. Their albums include:

  • Especially For You
  • Green Thoughts
  • 11
  • Blow Up
  • A Date With The Smithereens
  • God Save The Smithereens

Their lead singer Pat DiNizio also was the Reform Party candidate for the U.S. Senate from New Jersey in 2000. I have no idea how many votes he got.
